Time to start letting your baby participate in the process. There are baby safe spoons - give her the spoon and let her "help". Dip it into the food and help her get her first bite herself and then start to feed her bites while she also works out how to get her own. Maybe also give her a bowl with a bit of the food in that as well. And yes this gets messy - very messy so have fun with it.

I don’t know if links will show up here, but there’s a really good article about picky eaters you should read here: https://www.nbcnews.com/better/health/what-makes-kids-picky-eaters-what-helps-them-get-over-ncna846386

It might give you some tips and an idea about why she’s being so fussy about mealtime. Good luck.

Not bribery, but positive reeinforcement, which is what OP should be using. Also @OP, get some professional help, raising children does not have to be hard, just ask someone who knows the stuff. Not meant to be condescending. Too many people fail raising their children when they could just ask and learn a few really simple tricks to make everybodys life much easier.
My wife is a kindergarden teacher (so basically a professional), and even she ask CPS (or whatever the equivalent in your country is) when she has trouble with one of the kids. Usually it helps.

Not going to help but my almost 4 year old is STILL like this. The hangry is so real you have to force feed him the first bite, and then he realizes eating actually fixes his mood and is happy as a clam the rest of the meal.

My sisters kid used to be like that - for her. Because she was so used to meal times with mom being a battle that she was literally having an anxiety attack over it. You might want to try giving your child a small glass of juice or a piece of cheese while you prepare dinner so they aren't miserable from hunger by the time dinner is on the table.

When my daughter was a toddler she was like that first thing in the morning. I figured out her blood sugar level was probably low. I would give her a single teaspoon of honey which was a lot easier to get into her than food or juice. Then her mood immediately got better and she would eat her breakfast. So it became part of the routine. When she was older it was no longer necessary.

No, she’s old enough to feed herself. She will eat when she’s hungry. My 2 year old refused to eat mashed potatoes because there was gravy on it. He stayed in his high chair until he ate it, and believe it or not, he looked at us and said ‘it’s GOOD!’. It’s not child abuse.

No, it isn't.
Depriving the child of food would be child abuse.
What David suggested was leaving the food in view and within reach of the baby, and allowing it to discover the food itself. That's a long way from abuse.

Dude, we had to do it to my kid when he was 1 as well. Like a previous commenter said, it’s child abuse if you deprive the child of food. If you leave food on the high chair tray and let them sit there, they will eat.

Sounds a little bit like baby has learned this is how it starts, and it's becoming habit. Maybe find a new way of introducing feeding time if you can. Just a thought :)
